My main expertise is in Genetics and molecular biology, especially in bioinformatics, in the context of resolving data from next-generation sequencing (NGS). I have experience in laboratory-based molecular biology (human and microbes) and also experience in phylogenetic analysis. I have experience in methods such as DNA/RNA extraction, Gene Expression, Next-Generation sequencing, PCR, RT-qPCR, SDS-PAGE, and Western Blotting. 


I am  the academic lecturer in the Biology Dept., College of Education, Salahaddin University-Erbil
